[ applause ] >> glenn: hello, america. it's friday. we're going to try something for about a month. and see if anybody is still watching at the end of the month. we wanted to do something on fridays called founding fathers fridays. our founding fathers, boy, they have -- most people don't even know who they are anymore. they were once revered in this country as divinely inspired, courageous visionaries. over the past 100 years we have come to realize they were nothing but old, white heathens. the christian founding has been eliminate and now maybe they were dieiests at best. it started with woodrow wilson. he wanted to transform america with roosevelt and progressive movement started. 1915-1920. the whole thing was falling apart and they couldn't get america to go for it. they couldn't get, they couldn't control americans. they couldn't do it. they wanted to transform america and they wanted three things. one, undermine faith and religion. this is the point when social justice comes in. it's no longer about equal justice or about redemption. it's social justice. they got in our fai

. if we jump cheap corn into latin america -- dump cheap corn into latin america, what happens to the corn farmer in latin america? i think we need to ask that question. it needs to be part of the conversation. because i can't imagine most people who are undocumented really wanting to have to leave their home, their families, their friends to come to a country that they don't know or they don't necessarily speak the language, where they don't necessarily really know anyone, to try to make a life. they probably would rather stay home. but there's something that is drawing them here and it probably has something to do with our, you know, the great economy of the united states, but it probably also has something to do with the trade and agriculture policy which put a lot of pressure on economies in this hemisphere. so, with that, madam speaker, i'm just going to say, i'm going to yield back for the close to congressman polis, madam speaker, who has really been a champion on this issue, who has really kept the fire burning on it and i think, madam speaker, that we all owe him a debt of gratitu
as strongly as the general population. second, the most important issue in the hispanic community in america is economic empowerment, the ability to leave their children better off. some rhetoric by a handful of people over the years has been troublesome and i've always said, we don't want to be the antiillegal immigration party. we want to be the pro legal immigration part and we have to outline why illegal immigration is bad for legal immigration. which is what we're for. >> neil: looking at the land escape now, charles crist, opting out, running against you as a republican. maybe he thinks hello he'll have a better shot as a third part candidate. are you worried? >> i'm not worried. because ultimately this race was about running against what was happening in washington, d.c. when i got in 12 months ago and few people gave me a shot. i got in because i was the only candidate that was going to washington, d.c. to stand up today agenda the obama administration was advancing. i'm still the only candidate doing that. i'm running against two people, kendrick meek and charles crist, who support
as a friend, and america is very fortunate to have his talent as secretary of agriculture. i am honored to be here, to be speaking with you. the first speaker at this club was theodore roosevelt. i do want to point out that both peter roosevelt and franklin roosevelt or assistant secretaries -- both theodore roosevelt and franklin roosevelt or assistant -- were assistant secretaries of the navy. [laughter] there was a time when the navy only had three commissioned brigades, the united states, the consolation, and the constitution. we had a tiny navy, and one which had never fought. since the days of the revolution, the navy had been pretty quiet, although you could make a pretty good argument that the reason america changed the articles of confederation to the constitution that we have today it was because we could not build a national and navy to deal with the barbary pirates. that was one reason for the changes in philadelphia in 1789. in 1798, then secretary of the navy had three ships, a few marines to sail on those ships, and a decidedly limited navy. today, things have changed a l

to understand is, here again, the politicians are behind this. if you check out every working person in america, the vast majority are opposed to making 30 million -- and it is not 11 million, those are lies. 30 million illegal citizens. just like here in washington yesterday, somebody said that he wants to pass a resolution in a council where our city will not do business with arizona. who the hell is he to speak for washingtonians? this is the kind of thing that we have to be mindful of i am glad that you are taking a stance down there. mr. obama needs to be working on jobs instead of immigration. that is what he needs to be working on. before this is over with, we might all have to be working in strawberry fields and chicken factories because it is going to be a long time before jobs come back to america. even before the great depression, gas did not come back until the war. these jobs that people say americans do not want, and i do not believe that. i never see anyone jumping up and down in the streets for legalizing. host: he talked about washington, d.c. council actions. i have heard abou

: hello, america. on monday, i gave you a story and explained if you can't have financial regulation done, by honest people, you shouldn't have it done. it's done by crooks and thieves that we currently have in washington. the best way i can explain this when i got together with my staff this morning i said can you give me footage of george clooney in "oceans 11." this is my favorite movie. george clooney, "oceans 11." do you remember the scene? andy garcia character runs a casino. he's in the vaults where you cannot steal any of the money from all the casinos. well, they find out that somebody is stealing it so he calls the police. in this movie, he wasn't calling the police. he was calling these guys. he thought they were the police, but they weren't. it was the crooks. george clooney's crewny dressed -- crew dressed as cops. they rigged the phone life. he called the robbers to come and help stop the crime they were committing. so, here is andy garcia. this is us. this is our financial scandal. do you remember this? that is the day that so many people lost their life savings. scandal. w
want to maximize america's prosperity. our failure to act is perpetuating a broken system that discourages the world's best and brightest to come here and contribute to our economy. we will attract the world's best and brightest to america because our framework will award a green card to immigrants to get a ph.d. or master's degree in science and technology, engineering, or math from american university. finally, the american people deserve more than empty rhetoric and impractical calls for mass deportation. our framework says, if you've been working hard, kept your nose clean and be productive, you'll be able to get right with the law if you come forward, register with the government come to admit you are here illegally, pay the taxes you owe, and pass background checks bridge are framework creates a way to let people live upright lives after paying the penalties for illegal action. in conclusion, immigration reform is a morally complex and politically explosive challenge. there is no more important and difficult task than defining the american community and determining h
this is a very important adjunct to america's transportation system. now having said all of that and complimented you sufficiently, let me -- >> devil's lake on your mind, senator? >> mr. swkrao: yes, it is. yes, it is. you mentioned i think that the empire builder is probably one of the most successful long distance trains on the amtrak system. the senator from washington knows that, because that's where the empire bear in minder ends up. over -- builder ends up. over half a million people get on that train from chicago to seattle, it goes through north dakota and we face a problem. we have chronic lake flooding that's been going on for a dozen years now in what is called devil's lake. dramatic flooding. i think it's the only circumstance other than the great salt lake, where you have a closed basin, we don't quite understand where all of this is going to go, but the lake has increased in height, i think 25 feet now, and it just continues to rise. this year, it's expected to rise again. we have a bridge near church's ferry on a track owned by burlington northern, where amtrak, i believe, slows d
. foxnews.com. remember, your other news source during "america's newsroom". martha: this is a fox news alert, the government just releasing a key new economic report that gives us a better snapshot of where the economic recovery stands now. according to the latest estimate, the gdp, gross domestic product, grew at 3.2%, the first quarter of this year. the gdp is essentially a measurement of the country's overall economic output. so here to give us some clue as to what this number means for the economy, fox news business network's gerry willis. here is the latest bit of data we have to get a gauge on what the economy is doing. it's significantly lower than it was in the fourth quarter of last year. why? >> that was unsustainable, we had growth of 5.6% in the fourth quarter and that's the normal inventory rebuilding that happens after a recession. that's what was going on. so once that was sort of over, economists were looking for somebody else to pick up the slack in the economy. turned out to be consumers. they're spending at levels they haven't spent in three years. they came in with

and supportive. for a year now, sarah palin, glenn beck and their minions have been warning that america is morphing into a police state. so where is palin and beck now that governor jan brewer is doing to the southwest what president barack obama supposedly helps to do to the country. they're blissfully unconcerned, they don't see any threat to liberty at all. peter barnhart is the senior political writer for the "daily beast" and we're also joined by "daily beast" contributor, mark mckinnon, the vice chairman of public strategies and a former campaign adviser to george w. bush and john mccain. this is one of those interesting little inflection points where we learn where people really stand. peter, are they zwrust against the people on the right, they're only against big government when it's not doing what they want or it's doing what they don't want? >> exactly. that's right. it's kind of libertarianism for me, but authoritarianism for other people. the truth is, for all the talk that it's high taxes that tend to lead to government abuse, to government breaking into people's homes and
